R.I.P. ’67 Chevy C-10 Pick-up

Filed under: Cars, General, Projects — Tags: , — blasterhappy @ 7:03 am

A while back I blogged about a 1967 Chevy C-10 Pick-up I saved from being scrapped at a local scrap yard.  Well after a tornado came through our area on Sunday all hopes of making this truck into a rat rod were completely crushed (no pun intended).

Approximately 9:30 am a tornado came through our area with a vengenence.  Fortunately we were not directly impacted but received some very strong winds that a toppled a tree in my neighbor’s yard.  The tree came down right on top of the of the ’67 Chevy C-10 heavily damaging the stepside bed and cab.  Considering the amount of damage and what I have invested in the truck, I think I will pull the motor and transmission and scrap the truck.

My shop also received a good size hole from a large limb that feel from the tree.  Needless to say I will be home today cleaning up the mess and meeting with insurance adjusters.
